Juliana's Bananas This lovely book about fairtrade tells the story of a family of banana growers living in the Windward Islands and combines this with panels of information concerning fairtrade practices and the benefits these bring to small farmers in remote communities. With attractive collage-style illustration, the story of Juliana and her two children incorporates information about how bananas are grown and dramatises the threats to the crop posed by extreme weather and disease. The focus then widens with the introduction of other factual material and photographs giving an overview of the international banana trade and its workers and explaining the meaning and advantages of fairtrade. Also included are several tempting banana recipes.
